Our services in SA/NT
The RFDS provides emergency aeromedical evacuations throughout rural and remote South Australia and Northern Territory for people who are seriously-ill or injured and require urgent medical attention.
We provide quality medical treatment on the ground and use an aeromedically-equipped aircraft to transport patients to an appropriate hospital for any further treatment.
